Toronto, ON: A $300 million class action has been filed in Canada against the Canadian distributor of Kugel Mesh, Bard Canada Inc, an affiliate of the US corporations CR Bard Inc, and its subsidiary Davol Inc, on behalf of any Canadian who received a Kugel mesh surgical patch as part of an abdominal hernia repair and suffered medical complications or related health problems as a result.
Faulty Kugel mesh patches have been implicated in serious medical complications including perforation of the bowels and/or chronic intestinal fistulaeirregular connective tissue growths between the intestines and other organs. Patients have suffered internal bleeding, infections, and in some cases death.
The lawsuit alleges that the defendants negligently breached their duty of care to patients in the development, testing, manufacture and promotion of their Kugel mesh products. The claim has not been proven in court.
This lawsuit echoes complaints filed in complaints by thousands of patients in the US who have suffered injuries associated with Kugel mesh.

Over the past 2 years, between the time the Kurgel Mesh was putting into me & the time it was taking out...... (June 19th, 2008 - June 15th, 2010) I've had 8 surgeries trying to get this healed & removed which caused a massive size hernia the size of a soccer ball. (not over exaggerating the size.) it took me almost 6 years later & seeing a couple of doctors in Canada $ U. S. A. to find a doctor that is willing to do such a danergeous operation as this. According to GUINNESS BOOK OF MEDICAL WORD RECORDS..... on November 2nd, 2011 in Baltimore, Maryland. I'm the current record holder. I got it removed & had a hog-pin mesh put inside me on April 15th, 2016.
